Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Control anger

Write honestly

Writing helps writers when faced with greater challenges, and when emotionally confused.

When you write through an emotion be it anger, sadness, or happiness, you certainly feel good about setting your mind free from that thought.

Whichever way it all may seem to you writing is a great way to express your words so freely.

If you write through anger you feel down or with a kind of mixed up emotions. The mind can feel tied up in a knot and you tend to express what you are actually feeling most directly.

Negative thoughts come to mind and that is what makes you feel at your worst in time.

Writing with anger will not allow you to release your mind easily and most truly.

Usually when you approach a situation with anger what you say is not always as meaningful, and writing down those thoughts can be relieving. At the end of the day you won't like what you wrote.

For example:

Going through a divorce can cause anger, jealousy or envy.

Accepting the divorce is a problem for many couples and often one of the partners won't let go of that experience any sooner.

You can live in denial for a long time and won't understand what, why or who made this happen.

The many questions and answers that go through your mind can become far too much to take on.

Writing about your experience can help you, or can also destroy you if you are not careful enough. Writing through an emotion is not always the case to solve your emotion especially, if it is the angry emotion.

You may not want to let your readers know of your personal experiences. Try jotting down your angry thoughts in your journal about your miserable life and in time you will see a relieved mind.

Talking about the divorce to a close and trustworthy friend is another great idea.

Writing down with anger is not for every writer.

Your expressions can turn out to be harsh and degrading. When expressing yourself in an angry emotion most of what you mention is not from the heart but from the head.

Control Anger

What is anger

Write with a full mind

Words from the surface can spill out easily to let out that steam you are truly feeling.

Mostly if you want your story heard and are looking for advice then writing will work for you.

Try to be positive and energetic in life through all experiences.

It is easier said than actually approached in reality.

Time is required to be normal again if you put it that way.

Responding with anger in writing is not the only way to feel good.

If you choose to write about your anger publicly it can be useful to you from all aspects.

Keeping that anger inside of you can destroy you.

The rapid response from your angry emotion can make want to act right away.

You don't want keep that anger inside for a long time because yelling at someone, or breaking something in your way can make it all good again.

The slow keeping anger that brews up in you can leave you like a total wreck.

Being angry for a while can change you in many ways.

Your health is affected right away and you can fail in your challenges.

Everything around you can feel miserable and slow, and looked at in a negative and depressing way.

Emotions can play with the mind if you let that be.

Writing through any emotion can make you feel all sorts.

You can write about anger if you feel like it and want to.

Remember whatever you choose to write on when in an angry emotion may not always work out for you.

Some writers will benefit from their great expressions.

Writing about your feelings can make you feel good and awful at your worst.

Every individual reacts differently in all emotions expressed.

You do learn through all emotions and have a better understanding of what you are feeling when writing about that emotion.

The reasons for getting into that mood and what had caused you to be that way will be more noticed and learned of.

Write and write more about your thoughts, feelings and of yourself to get a better view of everything in your life.

Sometimes you can bring yourself to laughter when you realize how silly certain issues can sound or look to you.

Nobody wants to look like a fool but you also don't want to look stupid in your writing.

Be direct and to the point.

If writing about your angry experience works for you then go ahead and do it.

I write when I am angry, sad, or happy, and don't always want to share everything about me from all emotions experienced.

These emotions show me more about myself and I enjoy jotting down my thoughts.

I feel better and more positive about my life.

My emotions tell me lots about my life.

I knew that when I started writing on Hubpages.

Through all times my work had been appreciated and learned from by most of my followers.

My life showed me another me in a foreign country.

I learned and am still learning about my new challenges.

The steps I took forward had allowed me to see a more confident me and a much happier me.

Life is great if you make it that way.

I accomplished my goals with the help of many kind writers on Hubpages.

I am grateful for such a friendly community.

I can take myself out of a situation and do so with a bit of mixed emotions.

Nobody is perfect and most situations handled are not always with perfection.

Behaviors of people are different.

Write with a full mind.

You should learn from your angry experiences and don't look at your life in the most negative way.

Anger can make you want to do everything at your worst behavior. Control is not at your side during that moment.

When you write to express anger you can feel helpless and weak.

Will there be a positive act from that anger emotion?

You react quickly without thinking correctly to not be a victim. The lack of control can put you in bad moments. The positive act can come from the negative thought.

Good things do come out of some bad actions.

Expressing power and a strong mind can teach your great lessons.

I taught myself to be positive and to make that my only option.

I wrote many hubs of my experiences and that helped me cope with my life emotionally.

I did not want to feel left out or isolate myself. A social life is very important and expressing my true feelings in my writing has shown me wonderful moments.

When I felt disappointment I wrote about that topic and that had made me feel greater.

I managed my days thinking and writing about me.

Encourage others to look beneath their anger.

Figure out what got you to that point and work out your emotions from there.

Chat about it and relieve that anger from within.

Don't blame others for your anger.

Certain health problems can put you in all states of minds when you realize your faults make the changes to get by.

The way you live can make a difference to your daily life events.

I chose to feel free and enjoy each day.

I enjoy writing and know without writing I down my thoughts I will feel at my worst.

It is my style of therapy.

I express freely and write freely.

Moments are made to be shared with loved ones or friends.

Make happy moments to be your best part of your memories.

Live to be loved and to love others.

I opened my mind to many adventures and take each day as I see it.

I don't know what tomorrow will bring to me or will be but I do know today counts more for me.

I feel excited and look forward to my Happy Holidays.

No weather or person can get me down I am far too smart for anything to get in my way.

I am relaxed and happy!

Writing has improved my knowledge of many topics and learning never stops.

What makes you the better writer?

Happy Holidays to all!

      I like the idea of writing as a vehicle to express emotion and in turn give more life to the writing itself. Using emotions, especially the negative ones, in such a way seems a productive and positive method of expression. Great Hub, thank you.

      I agree, anger is the most destructive emotion, it can put a stop to all types of creativity. I do my best to channel the negative energy into a positive action, and hopefully become inspired.

      Some very good suggestions in this hub!

      I find writing is like a therapy to me. When many things are going on in my mind, I usually pen them down and feel good and lighter.

      Another wonderful hub shared by you. Thanks!

      Well said!! One of the reasons I write is that it is cathartic. It helps me to work through things I may just let toss around and not resolve.

      Angels are on the way to you. ps

      Writing is helpful, but unkind words are often spoken/written in anger. Like Leonardo de Vinci, he became angry before finishing the painting of the "Last Supper" and he could not finish until his anger had dissipated.

      Voted up, UI and shared.

      Some of the most powerful poetry I have ever read seethes with anger. One of my favorite poets is Sylvia Plath, who was deeply troubled and wrote from a very conflicted place psychologically.

      Writing has been a great way for me to deal with my emotions. When I write how I feel, I teach myself what to do to help me feel better. I am able to sift through the many layers of emotion that exist, and sort out what is actually happening and why I am feeling the way I do. I am able to see the thought patterns and circumstances that need changing for things to get better.

      Very interesting concept. I have never tried to write through anger. It seems like both a helpful and hurtful thing to do. Perhaps I will stay away from it.
